The Chenango County Health Department has issued a DO NOT DRINK WATER ORDER for the South Otselic Water District effective November 16, 2018. This order is due to the failure of the well pump which supplies the district. Steps have been taken to correct the failure. It is estimated that the do not drink order will be in effect for 7-10 days. The district will arrange to have potable water available for staff next week. In the event that the order is not lifted by the time school resumes after Thanksgiving break, arrangements will be made for students and staff to have access to potable water.
